Long Description:
In a memorial garden by the cemetery of St. Henry's Catholic Church stands a beautiful wind harp. It was placed as a memorial for Timothy Fitzmaurice, who was a music director for the church. Luckily, when I visited it was a windy day, so I could hear the unique sounds coming from the harp.


Here is a link to the company that built this harp: (visit link)

The following is taken from their website on the testimonial page:

"The harp invokes a sense a sacred mystery – frequently the sounds are ones I’ve only “imagined” as opposed to “heard.” It has been a wonderful experience to see people sitting by the harp and using it as a place of calm and meditation.

I can think of nothing I enjoy more. Unfortunately, I don’t seem to set aside enough of my time to enjoy its benefits.

What we have come to appreciate by having a wind harp in our living environment is how much we need to offer people a place of peace."

— Father John, St. Henry’s Church
